Garden Tuesday - Chinese Fringe Flower

Chinese Fringe Flower


I know you're probably thinking, "Why is Pam posting a spring flower here when fall is in full swing?"

I'm not. This gorgeous flowering shrub is blooming right now. Isn't it lovely? I've looked it up online, and some sources say that it blooms in March, and then other's say that it blooms repeatedly. I'm going with repeatedly. I just love it, especially with the blue of my neighbor's house in the background.

That is a pretty flower and so colorful! My "can't make up it's mind" azalea has like three blooms on it right now. Did the same thing last year.

I stopped by this morning but didn't have time to comment. I love the color of the bloom. It's really hard to find a shrub that blooms this time of year.

Is it ever pretty:) And I agree w/ the blue.. it's perfectly enchanting on this very fall day here.

So pretty! It's cold and rainy here - thanks for the flower shot.

Great picture. It's nice to have a splash of color in October!

Stunning picture! I wish I had that colour flowering in my garden.

Pretty!

Strange things are going on in my garden, too-- an iris and a rhododendrum in bloom. Setting a pumpkin out with those would look silly, so I'm going for the eternally springtime look.

I'm waiting for my wrinkles to follow suit.

we are on the downward slide of fall colors... still pretty, but quickly going south... these are very nice

Great photo! I have a nice photo of a Fringe Flower too, from my sister-in-law's backyard. If it blooms into the fall then it is a real treasure!

I love seeing flowers still in bloom when the weather is chillier. It gives me hope for the winter!

Les said...

What a beautiful plant. I'd love to have on in my garden, but I'm in Zone 5. It wouldn't stand a chance against our bitterly cold winters. Thanks for the picture, though!

Wow, how wonderful to have such colour at this time of year!
